Guide to Kuala Lumpur – Subang Jaya
Approximately 20km from Kuala Lumpur’s city center, Subang Jaya is practically a city in itself with a little over 1.5 million people residing in its grasp. Filled with businesses as well as educational institutions, Subang is the central hub of working class and students alike, catering to both locals and foreigners in its melting pot of diversity.
Offering a convenient one-stop destination for shopping, dining, and leisure, Subang Jaya is the place to be, thanks to a multitude of shopping malls, activity hubs and eateries. This is a great place to see students, young professionals and families at their cosmopolitan best, and is great for a good time.
10am – Sunway Pyramid
Start off your exploration with one of the biggest malls in Subang Jaya. Easily recognized by the giant lion sphinx head at the front of the mall and its Egyptian inspired decor, Sunway Pyramid is one of the most popular malls within the Klang Valley. Begin your day by heading over to Delicious for brunch before you wander around the mall.
Sunway Pyramid holds brands from across the price spectrum, catering to both higher-end and lower-end shoppers, carrying an array of brands. If you’re looking to do a little more than just shop, Sunway Pyramid’s popular ice skating rink is great for spending an hour or two wobbling across the ice. If you’re not up to skate, hit the competition-sized bowling alley or the archery store for a good fun-filled time.
1pm – Sunway Lagoon
Just walking distance from Sunway Pyramid is the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park. Awarded as one of the best international theme parks in the world as well as the best attraction in Malaysia, Sunway Lagoon is great for spending some quality time as a family or hanging out with your friends.
Sunway Lagoon is broken down into 5 different zones: Wet Park (water rides galore!), Amusement Park (packed with roller coasters and dry rides), Petting Zoo (great fun and education for kids), Xtreme Park (for the adrenaline junkies) and Scream Park (be ready to be scared in the horror house!), and is guaranteed an experience to remember. If you’re really keen on trying out all the rides in the theme park, it would be better if you allocated a whole day to truly enjoy your experience there.
5pm – Caring Blind Traditional Massage
After a couple of hours being active and jumping around, make your way to the Caring Blind Traditional Massage and get yourself a foot reflexology to fix your tired feet.
